Contents Preface / by Brett Steele -- Introduction / by Aaron Levy -- Vittorio Gregotti -- Paolo Portoghesi -- Francesco Dal Co -- Hans Hollein -- Massimiliano Fuksas -- Deyan Sudjic -- Kurt W Forester -- Richard Burdett -- Aaron Betsky -- Kazuyo Sejima -- Paolo Baratta -- Afterwords / by William Menking
Summary Features an unprecedented series of interviews that editors Aaron Levy and William Menking have conducted with each of the living directors of the Venice Biennale for Architecture, including Vittorio Gregotti, Paolo Portoghesi, Francesco Dal Co, Kurt Foster, Massimiliano Fuksas, Kazuyo Sejima, and Deyan Sudjic, among others. The origins of the architecture biennale are generally traced to the 1970s, when it emerged from under the umbrella of the larger Venice Biennale, which was itself established in 1895. Since then it has become one of the most prestigious forums for architectural discourse today, and has served as a model for a range of international exhibitions. This book explores the biennale through conversations with the directors who established its particular discourse, as well as with the current president of the Venice Biennale, Paolo Barrata. These conversations do not seek to recapitulate the exhibitions themselves but rather explore the questions that these exhibitions raise, with the hope of offering a model for future curatorial endeavours
